Portofino Bermuda
Great Italian Restaurant

$$, Italian Cuisine 
 
Portofino is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Bermuda. Located in the City of Hamilton, Portofino with its little shuttered windows and traditional brick walls and hanging lamps, creates a wonderful Northern Italian ambience. There is an open dining area as well which gets crowded quite fast in the evenings, particularly on Fridays. If you want to take your dinner in this open area, I would recommend that you reserve your table and reach early at Portofino. 
 
 
 
The restaurant is renowned for the two starters, calamari and garlic bread. Pizzas are great, and our favorites in pizzas are the pepperoni and artichoke variety. There are 18 varieties of 9-inch pizzas. So if you are a Pizza freak, this is the place for you in Bermuda. 
 
Apart from the Pizzas, there are also conventional Italian dishes at Portofino like Venetian-style liver, veal parmigiana, chicken cacciatore and beefsteak pizzaiola. The Bistecca and the fettuccine Alfredo pasta are also great. Prices are reasonable and portions are quite good as well. 
 
 
 
There are quite a few well-prepared and reasonably priced specialties, including classic minestrone, different kinds of spaghetti, freshly made pastas, including lasagna, ravioli, and cannelloni. Portofino Bermuda has a limited selection of Italian wines. 
 
If you have arrived at Portofino during a crowded evening, you need to be prepared to wait. It might be a test of patience for you. The waiters may also not appear to be too friendly on those evenings while they manage the excited diners. The restaurant has a separate take away section. 
 
There is no lunch served at Portofino on the weekends.

Borgida Family (June 23, 2015) 
Our family of 5 dined at Portofino this evening. We ate out on the front patio. Service was excellent. Very prompt and gave us great options and opinions on what to choose. We ended up eating mostly from the specials. The risotto was extraordinary. áVery light and perfectly cooked. Scallops were also excellent. Veal parmisian was so tender you could cut it with a fork. áThe evening was topped off with the Tiramisu which was also excellent. áNo complaints whatsoever and reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food served. We would absolutely go back.
